Neshaminy Constructors, Inc. (NCI) was founded in 1962 on a tradition of quality workmanship that began in 1920. From the humble beginnings of an office in the founder’s home, ten employees and a quarter million dollar volume to a multimillion-dollar enterprise today consisting of up to 200 employees with gross sales in excess of 30 million dollars annually, Neshaminy has continually demonstrated innovation and versatility in its ability to deliver quality projects on time.
F. Anthony Canuso, Sr., Founder and Chairman of the Board of NCI, is part of the third generation of his family to be engaged in the construction field. The tradition began in 1920 when his grandfathers Francis A. Canuso, Sr. and John B. Acchione, Sr. formed the heavy construction firm of Acchione and Canuso. Later Francis A. Canuso Sr. founded F. Anthony Canuso & Sons Inc. which constructed many major bridges in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area, most noted of which is the Henry Ave. Arch structure over the Wissahickon Creek. This firm included Vito A. Canuso Sr. who was the father of F. Anthony Canuso, Sr.
Today F. Anthony Canuso, Sr.’s children Tony Canuso, Jr. and Joseph Canuso are continuing the legacy by helping to lead NCI into the new millennium.
